Mint Chocolate Brownies

A couple of nights ago my mother had her book club around, and we prepared asian style food for it.  I think that asian food requires a freshness and a zing, so what is a better dessert to serve than chocolate brownies with mint in them? 

Ingredients
100g milk chocolate, your favourite brand and/or quality
50g mint chocolate, must not be 'gooey' sort, chocolate must be solid but flavoured with mint
125g butter, cubed
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour
+ handful of chocolate dinner mints (can be gooey sort) roughly chopped


Method
On low heat in a saucepan, place the milk and mint chocolate, the butter and cocoa powder together.  Stir with a metal spoon until ingredients are melted together.  Pour sugar into mixture and mix together until just combined.  Pour lightly beaten eggs into mixture and roughly bring together with spoon.  Sift flour over top of mixture and the roughly chopped of chocolate dinner mints; bring together with a wooden spoon.  Add 1/2 tbsp of milk extra if needed.  Pour into a lined brownie pan and bake in oven for around 50 minutes on 140 degrees (fan-forced).  Cut into bite size pieces before serving.

  1. Brittany, one of my biggest baking mistakes as a newlywed cook was with mint brownies. We were having company and I mistakenly used peppermint oil rather than peppermint flavoring. The entire apartment smelled like a breath mint! Thank you for a gentle recipe and for the long-ago reminder. (Oh, and of course we tossed out the chewy chocolate breath mints!)

  6. I love mint in dessert, but I can't seem to find any mint extract so it's great that this recipe doesn't call for it. Mint and chocolate is sooo delicious! Sweet yet refreshing.
